TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Former teacher, then for 25 years a professional photographer and international lecturer for Agfa, now a teacher again - Head of Photography at a UK College. BSc Lancaster (physics), BA Sussex (art history), MA Goldsmiths (contemporary imaging).

MY TEACHING STYLE

Lots of fun and student discovery. Adapting the old adage "give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, give a man a fishing rod and you feed him for a lifetime" ... in my approach to teaching this becomes "give a student a fish and you feed him for a day, give a student the desire and necessary skills and you will feed him for a lifetime". And in case you are wondering about the rod, he/she makes their own because they discover that they want to!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Kodak European Gold Award Winner Agfa UK Portrait photographer of the year Agfa UK Wedding photographer of the year ABIPP

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

BSc (Physics) Lancaster University BA (Art HIstory) Sussex Uuiversity MA (Contemprary imaging) Goldsmiths University London

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Having employed many photography graduates over the years I have always been amazed by their lack of both critical knowledge and technical skills. As such my teaching resources are applicable to a wide range of student age and ability because they are built around the assumptions that: 1) students start with zero or limited knowledge 2) They should be interesting and fun. 3) Theory should be introduced in context - it should be followed by 'real world' examples of its application.
